“Let me just say that in 2016,the Capitol police recorded fewer than 900 threats against members of Congress. In 2017, after #Trump took office, that figure more than quadrupled, according to the #Capitol police.The numbers continued to rise every year of the Trump presidency,peaking at 9,700 in 2021. In 2022, the first full year of #Biden’s term,the numbers declined to a still-high 7,500. (2023 data not yet available.)”

Went to the grocery store today in the middle of an extreme heat warning. 3 vehicles just idling in the parking lot, empty, to keep the AC pumping.

We’re hooped.

In Canada, a new law makes dishonest greenwashing illegal.

Suddenly every claim about Carbon Capture and Storage has been scrubbed much more thoroughly than smokestack exhaust.

Greenwashers "we're taking down our lies, not because they became more accurate, but because the law made us."

Is the attempt to spin it a hilarious fail, or a painful reminder that they're intact and still trying to spread BS?

"After the passage of Bill C-59, the Pathways Alliance immediately scrubbed its entire website. “This is a direct consequence of the new legislation and is not related to our belief in the truth and accuracy of our environmental communications,” it explained."
